LEARN TO FLY FISH
If you have ever wanted to learn to fly fish, here is your chance - SPFF’s classes will take you step by step from your first cast to landing a beautiful trout on the Lower Owens River. The classroom sessions at the ONE GENERATION CENTER cover everything from knot tying to choosing the correct flies. At the nearby pond in Reseda Park you will learn the essential casts to prepare you to fish in rivers, lakes or our local beaches. SPFF supplies loaner rods and reels to get you started. The classes are run by certified instructors and experienced Club members. The first four Saturday morning classes are March 11 thru April 1 with a special graduation class in Bishop, CA on April 7th.
Classes start at 8.30 am and run until 12 noon.
